What we're about

This is a group for Desis who are in their 30's or 40's to meet new people and make new friends. Purpose of this group is to provide a platform to young desis to connect, find common interests and build friendships. Join our events and take experiences to next level.

This group is geared towards desis in 30's or 40's who want to explore and connect with other Desis in New York and around in NJ,CT, PA etc. . This group is about learning ,experience and friendships.

A few things to note:

1) Events: All events will be designed to foster friendship. Dinners will not have large attendance lists.

2) Age: This group is intended for people in their 30's or 40's. I'd appreciate it if you respect that.

3) In an effort to stem the amount of people who RSVP and fail to show up, I’m going to implement the following policy for any person who RSVPs for the 1st time to an event that has a set reservation number and has not shown up to any past events:

When you RSVP as a 1st Timer, I will send you a message to confirm that you will be attending the event. To confirm, simply respond to my message within 48 hours, and you’ll remain on the RSVP list. In the event I do not hear back from you within those 48 hours, if there’s a wait-list, I will remove you from the RSVP list to have someone from the wait-list take your spot.

So please be sure you have your meetup settings allowing me as organizer to send you messages through meetup directly.

4) Removal: If you’re been a member of the group for six months and haven’t RSVP’d or attended a single event, then I reserve the right to remove you from the group. I know that there are a ton of meetup options for one to partake in this great city, but I hope that if you signed up for this group, you’re genuinely interested in giving it a shot – stop by for a drink at one the the next happy hours, or take a chance and try a new cuisine while meeting some new folks.

Also, if you've RSVP'd to at least 2 meetups, and fail to show up without changing your RSVP and/or notifying me of your absence, I reserve the right to remove you from the group. C'mon, guys - it takes 2 seconds to change your RSVP and/or notify me - I don't have the patience for flaky people - feel free to join another group that will tolerate such behavior.

Finally, if it's been more than 18 months since you've last attended a meetup with the group, then I will remove you from the group. It's my hope that you'll enjoy the group's activities, and show up "fairly" regularly - if you haven't been to an event in a year and a half, then I can only assume you're no longer interested in being in the group and will remove you.

Organizer reserves the right to remove members at his discretion.
